Jacob Marais, grandson of Charles Marais, built the manor house in 1764, where it remains today as one of the earliest and finest examples of Cape Dutch architecture. With its ornate gables and thatched roof the Manor House is a fine example of splendour and history. The interior features an elegant and eclectic rendition of old and new with a selection of furniture in the Cape, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, ball-and-claw and retro style. The end result is a conscious move away from grandeur towards unaffected sincerity with classical refinement.
